That's why I shop Amazon, they matched everything and no tax.
Gamestop has liek 50% trade in so i can trade my video games and consoles [lol why do i need those for anyways?] at a minimal loss and that Edge card too that covers partial tax ..
and those lolgiftcards that do not stack with a single order!
you are such a tool!

You know how liquidations go... mark the product up 50% then offer 30% off! Don't expect too many great deals on this one.
Usually the way they do it with games is even more trickery, though its only yourself doing the tricking. The signs will say like 30%-70% off games, but there will either be no more of the games that were marked off at 70% off or they would have never existed to begin with. There can be multiple reasons why the top % off isn't on the shelves, but either way you be hard pressed to be the first one to nab something before an employee. At least thats what I seem to find in regards to any type of primarily tech/game stores.

next will be Blockbuster, but they will shift to streaming and mail to rival netflix, and what I hear of their streaming quality, could beat out netflix. Imagine if BB could deliver release day movies via streaming and jack up their fee just a little, I would contemplate leaving 'flix for that..pretty easy to get customers..just pull an ECA move, when they close shop, convert everyone to the mail/streaming program w/ no hassle..

When Circuit City went under, the liquidator marked everything up to MSRP, then started the markdowns. Simple as that. And it put all stores on the same footing. They didn't pick prices out of thin air.
Folks who complained about "this TV was $200 cheaper last week!" didn't seem to understand that that sale price was Circuit City's. They no longer owned the TV. The liquidator was a new owner, and was starting the pricing at full MSRP. It would be a logistical nightmare for the liquidator to keep track of all regional prices (and recent short-term sale prices) for every location nationwide and start their liquidation there.
And no, that's not a ripoff, because--unlike Circuit City--the liquidator was going to keep lowing the price of the TV until it sold.

Too bad EB/GS is still around.
why do you say this? GS is ten times better than gamecrazy... I will miss GC but their business practices were terrible, not to mention they were very conservative with their promos, which never stacked with "MVP"... I will miss the store but overall I love GS far more

I'm confused. Is this just the ones in Oregon or all around the country?
yeah its buried at the end of his first sentence, but it says ALL in big capital letters, so I think we're assuming ALL as in nationwide..

Bummer because there were 2 stores just a couple of months ago, and the other one (gone now) had a few good deals I meant to take advantage of. My bad.

It's always sad to see a business close up shop, but it's not exactly surprising. There's one store left in St Louis (I think there's only one) and they did no advertising what-so-ever. It's kind of hard to know if its worth going in when they don't advertise. From the one time I was at the store, it looked pretty nice, but the prices were a bit high. I guess I'll go in and see if I can get a deal.
I'm not sure how accurate this is, but from what I know there are at least 2 stores in the St. Louis area, plus one in Granite City. I used to work at W. Florissant, which is still open, and my friend is the manager at, and I'm friends with 2 other workers at, the Delmar store. Not sure if S. Grand is open or if it was closed down months ago, along with the other one(Festus?).
